Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath, no man manages his affairs, as well as a tree, does.

    A tree with character. It certainly has had to manage its affairs. 🙂

    After seeing Judi Dench’s “My Passion for Trees,” I would have to totally believe Shaw! Have you seen it, Sherri? Totally worth it. I like the tree you have chosen for this quote.

    The tree has definitely stood the test of time. It has a stately presence by itself.

    oh boy, this could be a great conversation starter over dinner. Show this image, pairing it with the quote and see where the conversation goes!
